Description

This release fixes CVE-2018-12015 vulnerability (a directory traversal). It also fixes creating a file with a trailing white space on the file name. It also allows to archive absolute path names and it speeds up extracting large archives.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
